This week has been crazy! We were on Vancouver for most of the week. On Monday evening we went to the mission home and all of us new missionaries were able to meet president and sister Taylor and stayed the night at their home. It was so fun. I got to spend time with my MTC district which was definitely a blessing. Then on Tuesday we had a trainer trainee meeting where they established expectations for us and really got is excited for all of the work that is here in the Washington Vancouver mission. Pres. Taylor always says that God doesn't do random and I really believe that. Heavenly Father is so aware of is here in la center and is hastening the work according to our diligence and faith. Then on Wednesday we had an all day training for the iPads. The church is using our mission, and 28 missions, as a pilots to learn how mobile devices will help increase the work. This week we are focusing on safely using our devices and then on how to best use our area books and then we will be retrained on Facebook and reintroduced to it. It's awesome because everything we are learning is helping us as missionaries and helping us prepare for our future families and children to protect them against the evil on the Internet. Then on Thursday we got to go to the temple with our district and sister wade took us. She is such a sweet heart and takes good care of us. The rest of the week went by great. We did a lot of service and have a new investigator, Juan. We went to meet with his grandson Luis and he sat in on the lesson and has a lot of questions. He invited us to come back next week and we are very excited. Except he only speaks Spanish and very little English....so my companion does the talking and I just sit there and nod. I'm practicing the plan of salvation on Spanish so hopefully that's not a train wreck. Nicole is doing great. We taught her about Christ and his miracles and invited her to pray and think of something she could do that would follow christs example. We haven't seen her at church for two weeks so that's discouraging but we will continue to work with her. She is excited to be baptized but we need to help her see the importance of church as well as help her mother see that as well. The Glenn's are doing so awesome. Sean and heather, two of their kids, went to do baptisms for the dead on Saturday and they just loved it. Sean is progressing so much and wants to serve a mission and be sealed to his family. Bro. Glenn just got a job so that is a huge blessing. Sister Glenn still is hesitant to us teaching her but we talk with her about Christ and show bible videos and that seems to really invite the spirit. They invited us over on Thursday to spend some time with them so that is really exciting. We also met with jace and Michael. Jace was baptized and his dad Michael is inactive. We talked about baptismal covenants and why church is important. They said they would come so we are praying for them to come. Everything else is going great. We don't live on a working farm but there are cows and Tom the cat! I love it here. La center has some challenges but the lord is providing for us. I read this quote in the ensign and I love it. "Heavenly Father is constantly raining down blessings upon us, it is our fear, doubt, and sin that, like an umbrella, block these blessings fro, reaching us. His commandments are the loving instructions and the divine help for us to close the umbrella so we can revive the shower of heavenly blessings" - pres. Uchtodrf. I just love that. I'm so glad to hear that everyone is doing well and that the lord is aware of all of you. Always remember where the blessings come from. Its amazing how much we are loved. I pray for you all and love you so so so much!!
